Episode 31 -
Even though this is supposed to be centered on Bumblebee, Ratchet is stealing the shining role in this. I mean, his characterization is brilliant in this!*Upon bringing Megatron the newly retrieved artifact*
Megatron: "Ah, excellent work, Knock Out."
Knock Out: "I live to serve, Lord Megatron. But, what exactly is it?"
Megatron: "..."*Megatron shoots at Knock Out ,and an energy shield forms to protect him*
Megatron: "Now you know." (And knowing is half the battle! G. I. Jooooooe!
Knock Out: "I... think I leaked a little transmission fluid."
Having left Megatron, Starscream now tries to sweet talk Silas, who, like Megatron, is not amused. Guess old habits die hard, eh Screamer?
Ratchet (talking in his sleep/stasis): "What?! Do I hear a Fuzor in need of voice-box repair?!" - note that he mispronouced fuzor as "Foo-zor" instead of "Fyoo-zor", but Fowler got it right.
Ratchet: (still groggy): "I am able! Just ask Bantor! He was all mandrill before I put a tiger in his tank!" - Two Beast Wars gags! I love it! Even though it make no sense since Bantor wasn't in the Beast Wars cartoon.
THE FORGE OF SOLUS PRIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Could it be... the MAGNUS HAMMER?!!! But wait... her forge.... wasn't it a place, not an item? I'm pretty sure her forge was a place. It was located in an asteroid. So, this makes no sense.
MECH's schematics for their robot look like a crude wireframe image of Optimus, with many armor pieces missing. I guess they're basing it off his design since they got a good look at him back in episode 9.
Why doesn't Silas just grab the T-Cog and take it with him instead of leaving it to Starscream to carry away having to trust him to both show up at the rendezvous point and show up with it?
Don't mess with Silas.
That was very dumb of Breakdown to leave the hammer unguarded like that, allowing Bulkhead to go pick it up.
Poor Starscream. The guy just can't catch a break. Or make friends (or at least allies) with anybody.
"Fortress-Maximus Grade Nucleon Shock Cannon"? What, is Fort Max not a character in this show?
This was actually a pretty great episode. Probably the best of season 2 so far. I want to see more episodes of this good effort.
Next week... WHEELJACK AND DREADWING!!!!
